Ok, I figure I've been lurkin long enough. The cold season is here and I need to plan some stuff and make some lists for spring.(for me, not hub) I want to start chickens and rabbits next year. I figure we need to butcher 520 lbs of chickens for meat in one year. Should I do them all at once or in a rotation. I want around 20 layers for eggs. I'm looking at the barred rocks. Have heard they are a good meat and egg chicken. A couple bantys for setting.
Does anybody raise rabbits? I'm thinkin of starting with 2 bucks and 3 does. New Zealand. "They " say that they can be butchered at 8 or 9 weeks.
I want to make one building for both and just section it off. Any ideas would be great.
